Abstract
"Plastic crowns stems from the idea of taking a perceived “prestigious” ornament as a royal or beauty pageant crown and turning it into an object that anyone can purchase and enthrone themselves to be royalty for a day. It is the journey of deciding who you are: the constant conception and reinvention of oneself. his body of work probes stereotypical ideas of gender, sexual preference and related stigmas and their relevance in contemporary society. It questions how having multiple partners can be an expression of choice as opposed to it being an indicator of low morality, based on societal conventions. The work concerns itself with being at an intersection between traditional and contemporary culture and how the photographer finds herself wrestling with the contestation of this in-between space."--Provided by publisher.
